Are you a Verizon customer with unlimited data? Get ready to be throttled

As we learned from a recent study, Verizon has been remarkably efficient at convincing unlimited wireless data plan holders to switch to newer, more profitable data plans. According to market research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, just 22% of Verizon’s mobile subscribers were still on unlimited data plans as of the end of the second quarter. That still leaves millions of people with unlimited plans though, and we have bad news for all of them: According to a new report, all Verizon Wireless subscribers with unlimited data plans will be subject to throttling beginning October 1st.

Windows Phone Vs iPhone

Microsoft’s mobile failure stems from a lack of understanding of the iPhone’s success

Microsoft’s mobile failure stems from a lack of understanding of the iPhone’s success

After being among the first few companies to bring smartphones to the masses with Windows Mobile, Microsoft has repeatedly failed to return to its former glory in recent years. There are a number of reasons for these repeated failures in the smartphone and tablet markets, but the broadest and most important may be the simple fact that Microsoft appears to have absolutely no idea what users want. The company has focused on unique, differentiated experiences without worrying about making them truly compelling, and it repeatedly harps on the same selling points that almost no one seems to care about.

Now, a recent post may have gotten to the root of Microsoft’s problem: The company still has no idea what made the iPhone such a massive success. More →

Video: Want to see what happens when an iPhone 5s gets run over by a train? Of course you do

The iPhone 5s is amazingly solid for a smartphone made entirely of glass and ultra-thin aluminum. It looks great, it feels great and it can survive its fair share of drops as long as it doesn’t hit a hard surface on its corner. But can it survive being run over by a speeding train? More →

iPhone 6 vs Metal Samsung Galaxy

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

By on July 24, 2014 at 11:25 AM.

Here’s yet another way the iPhone 6 is messing with Samsung

Samsung has already started making fun in a TV commercial of the unreleased iPhone 6, telling potential buyers that its Android handsets had bigger displays for quite a while in an obvious attempt to kill the iPhone 6 buzz and divert attention to its own 2014 flagship handset. But the company appears to actually have a real iPhone 6-related problem, Digitimes reports, which may affect its own smartphone launch plans. Apple’s massive metal chassis orders with suppliers are apparently preventing Samsung from placing its own metal chassis orders for a future iPhone 6 killer that would ditch plastic in favor of metal.

Digitimes has learned from sources familiar with the matter that yield rates have not been an issue for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and the company instead has a completely different reason to hold the handset back.
